WASHINGTON D.C. - In what could be described as one small step for a
robot, but a giant leap for robot-kind, a trio of humanoid machines were
introduced Thursday, each with the ability to walk in a human-like manner.
Each bipedal robot has a strikingly human-like gait and appearance. Arms
swing for balance. Ankles push off. Eyeballs are added for effect.
